LAS VEGAS (AP) — A first wave of online shoe retailer Zappos.com workers is stepping into the company's new downtown Las Vegas corporate headquarters.
About 200 employees will see the results Monday of a $40 million makeover at the renovated former Las Vegas city hall building at Stewart Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard.
A Las Vegas Review-Journal preview (http://bit.ly/1fOoHEM) found a Lego brick sculpture in the lobby, an open-form office layout throughout the 12-story building, and pingpong tables and elevator video games for employees.
Up to 1,800 more workers will follow in days ahead.
The opening comes nearly three years after city officials and Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh (SHAY') agreed on a lease with the company that owns the property. Zappos.com previously relocated its headquarters from San Francisco to Henderson.
City Hall moved in February 2012 to a new building several blocks away.
